Trap Queen by Fetty Wap
‘Trap Queen’ is Fetty Wap’s debut single, introducing the young American rapper of New Jersey. ‘Trap Queen’ proved that an artist with a physical deficiency, as Fetty Wap’s right eye, can succeed through his talent, not precisely through his perfect public image.
The song managed to draw the attention of millions users of a streaming service, rapidly entering American charts and highlighting Fetty Wap’s musical potential.
‘Trap Queen’ is the artist’s tribute to his partner, able to completely understand and support his actions. The couple lives in a poor neighborhood, living a common life, baking pies and smoking, yet they spend impressive amounts of money to satisfy their needs, as driving a Lamborghini.
The first images of the video represent the background of a common neighborhood in New Jersey, with modest houses, where women use old stoves to cook and men smoke on the streets, to relax. Fetty Wap arrives with in his black convertible luxurious car, displaying large jewels as a sign of richness, being greeted by his partner as he entered their house. He hands her the shopping bags, as well as the money he earned, proudly counted by the woman.
Soon the house becomes crowded, as neighbors join the couple smoking and drinking, while the artist is offered a cigar by his partner. On the streets, the artist organizes a spontaneous concert, accompanied by neighbors, willing to start counting money, as Fetty Wap suggests.
The last scenes of the video focus on the couple’s experience of luxury. Both the artist and his partner drive expensive cars. He wears impressive gold jewels, while she counts another stack of dollars.
‘Trap Queen’ was created in February 2014, being written by the artist and it was officially released in November 2014. The song is included in Fetty Wap’s first album, ‘Fetty Wap: The Mixtape’, launched in February 2015, including the current single promoted ‘That Work’. The song was produced by Tony Fadd, a rapper and a producer of hip-hop and R&B artists as Ron Beezy (‘Tell Me Why’) and Stevie Flamez (‘For My Health’).
The video of ‘Trap Queen’ was directed by Nitt Da Gritt, also a rapper and a producer in RGF Productions. Nitt Da Gritt also created for Remy Boyz ‘Rewind’ and ‘Chipotle’, while in the case of Fetty Wap he designed the video of the second single promoted, ‘Make It’. ‘Trap Queen’ was released in August 2014, on Fetty Wap’s channel on a social network.
